it is kind of fun to listen to this particular offering because the first set is a pretty good audience recording and the second set is the board tape. The contrast is enlightening. The audience tape has the immediacy and the emotional reaction of the crowd - yes it comes with the boominess of the hall and the occasional yell, but it also gives you sense of being there, in the room. Of course the board is crystal clear, and that's cool too, but the music, distilled from the experience is not quite the same.
Which is better? Neither, really. They're both pretty wonderful.

Serious meltdown, was that Brent's doing? Sounds like a horror film soundtrack — definitely don't listen if you ate some bad acid.

Do I Win a Prize?
First to review a Charlie Miller show!
I have to admit, I only skimmed the first set. The audience tape was getting a bit much for my old ears and nothing was really grabbing my attention anyways.
My 4 stars is based almost exclusively on the pre-drums second set. The Shakedown is a monster and a must-hear. An Excellent Estimated as well. Strangest of all is that I really enjoyed Passenger which I'm normally not fond of. Another highlight is the trippy pre-drums space segment following a well-played Eyes.
If anything, be sure to check out this Shakedown.
